Fair enough, but the simple fact is that the interface needs to be changed
so that they can reclaim more of the sign ups to the grid. The last numbers
i have read on the learning curve is something like 70% of the users that
sign up leave because they have troubles with the interface.  And we must
also consider that this is a business and LL needs to make good to keep the
grid alive.

I would sugest that we try to improve the interface and make the viewer more
usable for all. Kirsten has done a great job modifying the 2.X platform, and
she seems to be moving it forward.

I do agree that the new interface is clunky and it needs work but as it
compares to the 1.x it is much improved.

And it was my mistake.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by
